The Texas A&M football team beat the SMU Mustangs 48-3 at Ford Field on Saturday. The Aggies struggled on offense in the first quarter but exploded for 41 points in the second and third quarters to put the game away.
With the victory, the Aggies moved to 1-1 on the season while SMU dropped to 1-2. It was the first victory at A&M for head coach Kevin Sumlin.
The Aggies need to win seven games this season to qualify for a bowl game. The win over SMU was the first step in that process. Whenever a team has a new coaching staff and does not win its first game, there is always some doubt in the process.
Actually going out and winning a game in convincing fashion helps eliminate some of that doubt from fans and players.
This is a look at the winners and losers from the Aggies' game against SMU.
